How people plan for grocery shopping varies significantly by age group and has moved along with macro-changes affecting eating culture. Eighty percent of people who cook from home find online recipes. In this era of instant gratification people want food available whenever they want it and the grocery retail landscape is shifting to meet these needs.

Today, leading digital grocer Freshdirect and Foodily, the self-proclaimed “world’s largest social recipe network,”  launched a new online service called Popcart to meet these needs. Popcart is the first web technology in the U.S. that turns online recipes into deliverable groceries. Engineered by Foodily, Popcart allows cooks to browse recipes online across more than 150+ million food websites and blogs and seamlessly integrate the ingredients into a online shopping cart.

According to Andrea Cutright, Chief Executive Officer of Foodily,

The web is the number one resource for home cooks, but when you go from online to browsing to in-store shopping, buying the ingredients can take hours and be a deterrent to getting dinner on the table…Popcart removes the friction from shopping for recipes, making meal planning more efficient than ever before.

Shopping for recipes is pretty simple. Download the Popcart it button to your bookmarks bar then simply highlight any ingredients from any recipe online and click ‘Popcart it’.  Customize your ingredients to you dietary needs and preferences. Check out when you are ready and FreshDirect will deliver you the ingredients the next day.
